Interesting discovery

Have always been fascinated with the naval story of the USS Indianapolis and now #35 has finally been located 18,000 ft. below where she down.
I think 900 of 1200 hundred crew were lost. 300 gone with the quick sinking, the others by shark, drowning, exposure or a drink of sea water.
Charles McVay, the captain of the Indianapolis was court martialed for failing to zigzag at sea. The commander of the Japanese sub that torpedoed the Indianapolis, Mochitsura Hashimoto, was brought over to testify at McVays trial.
As if he hadn't been tormented enough, McVay took his own life in 1968.
